May Workbench Roundup

With no looming GM deadline until July, I decided to work on whatever struck my fancy this month. Here’s my scatterbrained results.

A Warlord Panhard 178 to replace my existing one from Army Group North. The AGN one has an integrated base that I was never quite pleased with.

A Jump Off Point, Force Morale Trackers and Patrol Markers for my Early War French.

I think the small dinosaur is either from Iron Wind or Reaper and the Owlbear is from Otherworld.

Another Random Pulp/Horror Group

Whenever I’m in between projects or need a break, I have a (embarrassingly) large cache of miscellaneous figures that I pull from to cleanse the palette, so to speak. Here’s the latest batch.

 


Fool’s Gold – Iron Painter Round 1 Entry

Annually Wyrd Miniatures hosts Iron Painter Рa competition that pairs painters up head to head in a single elimination tournament. Entries are paired up randomly, a theme is chosen and the contestants have two weeks to post an image of their work. These are then scored by three judges using three categories; theme, technical skill, and aesthetic. Whomever scores highest in the pairing moves on to the next round, and the process starts again and continues until there is only one painter left standing.

I have entered twice in the past. Once I received a DNF (did not finish), and once I was eliminated in the first round for scoring poorly in the theme category. This year I decided to throw my hat in the ring again and, just in time, was able to finish my entry for Round 1. The theme was “Fool’s Gold” so I took the literal route and painted up a jester from Guild of Harmony. He’s mounted on a tiered cobblestone base insert, overlooking a treasure pile made with rhinestones and glitter that my wife grabbed at the craft store. The other entries can be seen in the Round 1 Gallery, and there’s some amazing creativity, brush work, sculpting and scratch building to be seen.
